BAFT is the association for organizations actively engaged in international transaction banking. It serves as the leading forum for bringing the financial community and its suppliers together to collaborate on shaping market practices, influencing regulation and legislation through global advocacy, developing and adapting new and existing instruments that facilitate the settlements of products and service offerings for clients, providing education and training and contributing to the safety and soundness of the global financial system.

Financial Engineering & Banking Society

The Financial Engineering & Banking Society (FEBS) is a non-profit research society aiming towards the promotion of decision making approaches in the fields of financial engineering and banking. FEBS was founded in 2010 in Greece. FEBS has a global orientation and welcomes the participation of researchers and practitioners from around the world interested in financial engineering, banking, and other related fields. During the last decades the globalization of financial markets, the intensifying competition as well as the rapid economic, social and technological changes, have led to an increasing uncertainty and instability in the financial and business environments. This new context has given a new rise to the role of financial management for the operation of firms and organizations. Furthermore, along with the increasing significance of financial management, the complexity of financial decisions has also increased with the introduction of new financial products and services.
